It is funny how this has gone over the years, around the time of Imagine, ( yeah, might be over ratted, but still maybe the best post Beatles Beatle album , I prefer All Things Must Pass), myself) John looked like the genius , and Paul the dummy , and Paul's next 2 albums didn't help ( Wild Life, and Red Rose Speedway ), and people applied this to the Beatles , retroactively . A few more years, and Johns' solo star had been tarnished a bit by some lackluster efforts, and Paul had bounced back with Band on the Run, and Venus and Mars , and I think people began to question the "John=smart, Paul-dumb" evaluation .
Not too may people could write as seemingly slight,but ingeniously beautiful song as "Mother Nature's Son" . Most of theBeatles career , I'm prefer John's songs, but Paul WAS amazing .
